Things started off simply enough in this week's Letters to the Editor, with "Chrysanthemum" responding to a spate of Zac Pennington film reviews (here and here) with the simple request that he simply "shut up." Not likely, dear.

Then things got a little more complicated when the issue of panhandling came up. Boy, didn't see that coming, didja? We heard from people who work with the homeless community, formerly house-less individuals, and those concerned by a perceived uptick in the number of people asking them for change downtown. Join the conversation, cuz it's not going anywhere.
